Kylie Jenner has been obsessing over her appearance for quite some time, and it appears she’s considering taking things a step further to achieve the look she’s always dreamed of. By now, everyone has probably noticed Kylie has had a number of cosmetic surgeries to make her appearance a bit more striking.
From botox to lip injections, Kylie Jenner has experimented with many cosmetic procedures, but now she’s reportedly obsessing over her waistline. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star may have a relatively slim figure that many teenage girls would die for, but she doesn’t think it’s perfect yet.
According to OK! magazine, Kylie Jenner wants to have plastic surgery to remove one of her ribs to make her waist smaller. An insider close to the 18-year-old reality star has shared details about her alleged desires. Although she’s been waist-training and working out vigorously, it’s just not enough for her to achieve the look she wants.
“‘She’s been doing waist training with a cincher belt and does all the crunches and sit-ups she can every day, but she wants a 22-inch waist.’ The insider added, ‘It’s one of the most dangerous procedures you can have but Kylie cares more about how hot she is in pictures than her health.'”
Although many women have attempted to achieve the same goal Kylie Jenner desires, the surgical procedure does have drawbacks. According to the Plastic Surgery Portal, rib removal for a smaller waist can come with a number of risks that can have long-term effects on a person’s health.
“Most board-certified plastic surgeons feel that rib removal is too extreme of a procedure to be performed for cosmetic reasons. The ribcage’s essential function is to protect vital organs. Even the lowermost ribs that are removed during rib removal surgery are positioned around some very important body parts: the kidneys, gallbladder, and even part of the stomach.”
Despite reports about the dangers of the surgery, Kylie Jenner is reportedly adamant about having a shape like her sister, Kim Kardashian. “She’s obsessed with Kim’s Paper cover and wants the same kind of shape,” the insider said. The latest reports follow a string of reports about Kylie and Kim’s rivalry. Although the two sisters have always had a close relationship, it has been reported that things have changed over the past couple months since Kylie turned 18. A family insider told Radar Online details about their strained relationship.
“Kylie has always idolized Kim growing up, but that’s turned into a seething jealousy between the two since Kylie got her lips done,” a family insider told Radar. Kim’s been very unsupportive of Kylie’s surgery and Kylie thinks that’s so two-faced,” added the insider.
Although that rumor still has yet to be confirmed or denied, many media outlets speculated that there was some truth to the claims when Kylie Jenner didn’t visit Kim Kardashian at the hospital following the birth of her Saint West, her second child with rapper Kanye West. That weekend, Kylie was spotted in Miami, FL, for the annual Art Basel show. However, the rumors about Kylie’s Miami trip were refuted by Hollywood Life when another insider revealed how excited Kylie was when she heard about her new nephew. It was reported that she immediately wanted to cut her trip short to fly home and meet him.
At this point, no one knows what’s in store for Kylie Jenner or if she’ll really go through with the surgery to remove one of her ribs. Fans will probably have to wait until summer to see what Kylie’s beach body looks like.
